She might only be a rookie, but Atlanta Dream point guard Shoni Schimmel didn’t back down to any of the more established stars at the 2014 WNBA All-Star game.

Schimmel, who goes by the nickname “Showtime” scored a WNBA All-Star record 29 points as the East beat the West, 125-124, on Saturday.  She showed her full arsenal—mixing deep three-pointers with floaters in the lane—as she out-dueled Tulsa Shock guard Skylar Diggins, who had 27 points for the West.

In addition to breaking the WNBA All-Star scoring record, Schimmel also had a game-high eight assists.
